Neighborly relations and community spirit are at the heart of Neighbors' Day - an event dedicated to celebrate and possibly forge connections with the people who live where you live. 
No matter where you are in the world, the celebration usually takes the form of a simple gathering, offering a chance for some mingling with new and old neighbors. 
In the United States National Neighborhood Day takes place on the third Sunday in September each year and hopes to build stronger communities that feel empowered to make positive changes on a local level.
In Europe,
Neighbors' Day has flourished since its launch in Paris in 2000 and is now celebrated by millions of people who all come together on the last Friday in May (this year, May 30) to celebrate solidarity and friendship in the community
